Hundreds of cyclists took in the sights of the county as a popular bike event returned.
The Norwich 100 bicycle ride celebrated its 25th year when it returned on Sunday, taking riders on a route through the city, into the Broads, past Horsey Mill and the coast and back via historic Blicking Hall.
The event - which offers riders 100, 60 and 30-mile options - is popular among the county's cyclists, and this year managed to fall during a respite from the week's rain.
Those completing the race were greeted with music, a beer tent and food, after enjoying refreshment stops in the Norfolk countryside along the way.
In total, more than 1,000 cyclists took part in the event, with Moira Vincent, an event crew member, saying 300 had signed up on the day alone.

She added that everything had run smoothly, and that they were pleased with the positive turn in the weather.
